Many different methods exist for training animals of all species: most rely on some variety of reinforcement or punishment. Food is generally considered to be a primary reinforcer, which means that it is something that the majority of animals find inherently rewarding, even without prior training or experience. With that said, there are several good reasons why using food in training may not always be a great idea. This presentation will cover these reasons, as well as extensive information about how to use positive reinforcement based training methods without the use of food.
